Spellbinding Treats & Mystical Movie Magic
Of course I had to put my own pretty spin on Halloween this year in the form of a girly movie night, complete with spookishly cute pink treats! These treats are all super easy to make ~ trust me, I put together this whole blog post all in the space of a few hours today, I don’t think I’ve ever worked so fast but clearly I was inspired! Whether you’re having a cosy night in with movies and snacks (and eating all the sweets you left out for the trick or treaters…), or if you’re celebrating with a Halloween party these would be super cute for your guests to enjoy too!
Sweet Cinnamon Popcorn With Marshmallow Ghouls
What’s a movie night without a classic bowl of popcorn! There’s something so cosy and nostalgic about buying real popcorn kernels instead of ready made, hearing them pop away whilst they’re cooking, and eating the fresh popcorn whilst it’s still warm! For this halloween version, I used cinnamon flavoured popcorn that I thought would add a lovely autumnal spice. If you can’t find cinnamon flavoured popcorn, simply sprinkle some cinnamon inside the popcorn bag once it’s ready and give it a shake. I added cute little spooky ghost faces to an array of pink and white marshmallows using an edible black pen, and mixed them in with the popcorn. So easy but so effective and adorable!
Floating Ghost Hot Chocolate
Warming drinks are always the perfect treat for a cosy movie night, especially when it’s cold and dark outside! I topped my hot chocolate with whipped cream and some ghoulishly cute marshmallows (again just made using the edible black pen). Don’t the marshmallows look like they’re all terrified of getting sucked into a cloud of cream haha! These ghouls would be super cute on any hot drink, including the autumnal favourite pumpkin spice latte!
Mummified White Chocolate Fingers
To make these super cute mummified chocolate biscuits, I started with a box of white chocolate Cadbury’s Fingers, then I melted some white chocolate and simply drizzled it over the top. What’s really great about the mummy design is that the drizzle doesn’t even have to be particularly neat, the messier the better! For the eyes I rolled out some teeny balls of white fondant and added little black dots on top with an edible black pen. I then left them in the fridge for a little whilst the chocolate drizzle set. I think they’re so effective how they are but if I had more time I would’ve loved to add some cute little pink bows!
So I know Scream Queens isn’t exactly a movie but it’s too iconic not to give it a watch, especially the Chanel-o-Ween episode, or the pilot with Ariana Grande as Chanel No.2 (I’ve always been obsessed with her fluffy lilac outfit!) I put together a little list of spooky but non scary halloween movies for you to pick whichever takes your fancy!
Wishing you a boo-tiful Halloween dolls!
